Gary Barlow's at my wedding!
by Holly Rummens

TAKE THAT star Gary Barlow has been at it again, performing his fourth secret wedding at Formby Hall, much to the surprise of stunned Litherland newlyweds, Dean and Chelsee Siadankay.

Straight off the stage from his Take That arena tour at the MEN in Manchester, Gary darted over to Formby Hall Golf Resort and Spa, to surprise unsuspecting bride Chelsee and her new husband Dean at their wedding reception.

Shocked guests swarmed around the childhood sweethearts and their two children Layla, two and Marcus, five, as Gary serenaded them with a rendition of ‘A Million Love Songs' on Friday May 29.

Groom Dean Siadankay, who has been with Chelsee for more than 12 years, said: “It was a dream come true marrying Chelsee, but to have our number one favourite singer Gary Barlow there to sing ‘our song’ and to make the day even more memorable was just amazing.

”We never thought it would happen to us!“

Following the surprise, Gary Barlow, a Liverpool FC fan, Tweeted to his four million followers: ”Wedding Number 4 has just happened! Only one more to go!“

Chelsee and Dean had contacted the former X Factor judge on Twitter back in January in the hope he would show up on their big day and even enlisted the help of the Champion Newspaper to raise awareness of their campaign.

Never giving up hope the ‘super-fan' couple from Litherland kept up their campaign right up until their big day.

Barlow pledged on Twitter that he would perform at five of his biggest fans’ weddings earlier in the year and so far surprised three lucky brides. But he couldn’t resist making an appearance at Chelsee and Dean's wedding day after hearing they were both super fan's.

Tim Cowell, Marketing Manager at Formby Hall Golf Resort and Spa, said: ”Keeping the surprise under wraps for weeks has been difficult to say the least but seeing the looks on Chelsee and Dean’s faces last night was well worth it.

“Gary was a true gent and its easy to see why he promised to do five weddings this year - it must be a great feeling to see how happy newly weds are when he shows up!

He added: ”Every wedding we hold at Formby Hall Golf Resort and Spa is special, but this one will certainly go down in the history books as one to remember!“
